I didn't say that its linux related, I just said that I have noticed this xmms 
problem solely on linux so far. IMHO the problem is related to the Xserver 
grab (for linux users to reproduce: play a song in xmms, click the logout 
button, the session manager will grab the Xserver and display the logout 
display, now see if the music stops playing).
